Hello,

 

May we know Windows 2016 or above ldap support authentication for cluster administration (not for NAS multiprotocol, just for LDAP auth login Cluster admin?

 

If support, what Attributes must define in Windows 2016 LDAP? e.g. uid, gid, unixhomeDirectory, loginshell, unixUserPassword......

 

appreciate if anyone can provide answer

Probably way easier to set up a CIFS domain tunnel for this:

https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap/authentication/configure-authentication-tunnel-task.html

 

Otherwise, ONTAP does support LDAP for cluster admin auth, but with Windows LDAP it gets a little tricky due to the password hashes being handled a bit differently. You'll likely have to manually enter a password in the account's unixuserPassword field.

Hi Parisi,

 

Thanks for your info, after setup unixuserPassword, it works
